New Eden: An Outreach Ministry through Creation Care to Multi-ethnic Communities


The Church of All Nations, a Japanese/multicultural congregation, launched the New Eden farm ministry in response to the environmental catastrophe resulting from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster. In the past five years, the New Eden ministry has advocated for creation care, and has been able to reach multi-ethnic immigrants, refugees, and the needy in local communities with God’s good news. “We have come to see that mission is not merely an activity of the church. Rather, mission is the result of God’s initiative, rooted in God’s purposes to restore and heal creation.” (Darrell Guder)
